Our Participants Talk About NITARP

  • Curtis

    To get the chance to work with astronomers and researchers in the field, to do authentic research, and to attend conventions and be immersed in astronomy is absolutely amazing for a high school science teacher.

  • Odden

    Astronomers are a remarkably collaborative lot.

  • Novatne

    By far, the most interesting part of my entire NITARP experience is the scientific method applied to the discovery process.
